Pence urges Republicans to stop attacking FBI personnel


Former Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday he is concerned by the FBI’s raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, but urged Republicans to stop “attacking” rank-and-file FBI personnel and calling to defund the law enforcement agency.

“This unprecedented action does demand unprecedented transparency,” the vice president said about the raid last week.  “I also want to remind my fellow Republicans: We can hold the attorney general accountable for the decision that he made without attacking rank-and-file law enforcement personnel at the FBI,”

Pence made the statement to applause at the “Politics and Eggs” breakfast at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire.

He acknowledging that he and Trump, under whom he served all four years, have had a tense relationship following the 2020 election. Still, Pence said, he was “deeply troubled to learn that a search warrant had been executed at the personal residence of a former president of the United States.”

Pence stated that during his time as vice president he saw “politicization” of the FBI and now, Attorney General Merrick Garland has not provided “nearly enough” information about the raid. more

  1. OK, Pence! You backstabbing bastard. Let’s see you line up a bunch of fibbies that will say under oath that they have never witnessed an illegal action by anyone in their sorry organization! Especially agents onsite on J6.

  2. “We can hold the attorney general accountable for the decision that he made…”

    Great, Casper Milquetoast; when can we expect that?

  3. “Sam had been looking the Shirriffs up and down and had spotted one that
    he knew. ‘Hey, come here Robin Smallburrow!’ he called. ‘I want a word with
    With a sheepish glance at his leader, who looked wrathful but did not
    dare to interfere, Shirriff Smallburrow fell back and walked beside Sam, who
    got down off his pony.
    ‘Look here, Cock-robin!’ said Sam. ‘You’re Hobbiton-bred and ought to
    have more sense, coming a-waylaying Mr. Frodo and all. And what’s all this
    about the inn being closed?’
    ‘They’re all closed,’ said Robin. ‘The Chief doesn’t hold with beer.
    Leastways that is how it started. But now I reckon it’s his Men that has it
    all. And he doesn’t hold with folk moving about; so if they will or they
    must, then they has to go to the Shirriff-house and explain their business.’
    ‘You ought to be ashamed of yourself having anything to do with such
    nonsense,’ said Sam. ‘You used to like the inside of an inn better than the
    outside yourself. You were always popping in, on duty or off.’
    ‘And so I would be still, Sam, if I could. But don’t be hard on me.
    What can I do? You know how I went for a Shirriff seven years ago, before
    any of this began. Gave me a chance of walking round the country and seeing
    folk, and hearing the news, and knowing where the good beer was. But now
    it’s different.’
    ‘But you can give it up, stop Shirriffing, if it has stopped being a
    respectable job,’ said Sam.
    ‘We’re not allowed to,’ said Robin.
    ‘If I hear not allowed much oftener,’ said Sam, ‘I’m going to get
    ‘Can’t say as I’d be sorry to see it,’ said Robin lowering his voice.
    ‘If we all got angry together something might be done. But it’s these Men,
    Sam, the Chief’s Men. He sends them round everywhere, and if any of us small
    folk stand up for our rights, they drag him off to the Lockholes. They took
    old Flourdumpling, old Will Whitfoot the Mayor, first, and they’ve taken a
    lot more. Lately it’s been getting worse. Often they beat ’em now.’
    ‘Then why do you do their work far them?’ said Sam angrily. ‘Who sent
    you to Frogmorton?’
    ‘No one did. We stay here in the big Shirriff-house. We’re the First
    Eastfarthing Troop now. There’s hundreds of Shirriffs all told and they want
    more, with all these new rules. Most of them are in it against their will,
    but not all. Even in the Shire there are some as like minding other folk’s
    business and talking big. And there’s worse than that: there’s a few as do
    spy-work for the Chief and his Men.’
    ‘Ah! So that’s how you had news of us, is it?’
    ‘That’s right. We aren’t allowed to send by it now, but they use the
    old Quick Post service, and keep special runners at different points. One
    came in from Whitfurrows last night with a “secret message”, and another
    took it on from here. And a message came back this afternoon saying you was
    to be arrested and taken to Bywater, not direct to the Lockholes. The Chief
    wants to see you at once, evidently.’
    ‘He won’t be so eager when Mr. Frodo has finished with him,’ said Sam”

  4. I constantly hear Trump attacked by what poor hires he makes. Mainly coming from morons that don’t understand the process. Meaning he still need to get appointment approved by Congress. But my God, how many actual conservatives are available to choose from in that shit hole town? A sad statement really. And Pence is one of the Holier than though assholes. Gods on his side, NOT YOURS.

  5. The corruption, the political weaponization of the upper echelons of the FBI is so blatant and obvious that any reasonably intelligent people in the rank-and-file cannot have missed seeing it. That means that all of the present rank-and-file agents are (a) part of the corruption, (b) ignoring the corruption, or (c) too stupid to recognize what’s going on.

    In all three cases, these people are not worthy of protection, much less respect and support.

  6. Didn’t Pence order his personal thug to murder an unarmed woman who was at the Capitol to petition her government for reddress of grevience, specifically the stealing of the Presidency that he facilitated?

    Ashli Babbitt, traitor Pence.

    Remember her name.

    WE do.

    I hope it tortures you to madness.

    And that her name is the last thing you hear as the noose pulls tight around your treasonous neck, sending you straight to the ninth circle of hell with the rest of the traitors.,s%20real%20body%20was%20imprisoned.

  7. Whenever I hear “deeply troubling” it is code for: BOHICA, we’re letting our friends (i.e. campaign contributors and the ones they get insider trading tips from), family and business associates walk.

  8. Typical fucking asshole establishment GOP move. What fucking proof is there that these threats are even remotely real or common? None.

    This is why we must conclude that establishment republicans are either morons or just in on all the big fibs being told by the FiBbIes.

  9. Petty Pence- a traitorous Deep State tool and his opinions reflect it. Anytime he speaks about President Trump, his passive aggressive comments drip with venom.

  10. Suggestion: Resume your threesome with Fauci and Birx and stay out of the headlines.

    A monkeypox on all of you ass-assasins.

  11. Pence has displayed himself as highly sometimey, unstable, and going any which way the (political) mop flops. Not a guy who’s true to anything or anyone.

  12. Hey, Mikey! You know how you keep the people that were promoted for their corruption, from corrupting the people they hired, to promote their corruption? Hmmm… You know what? That is a tough one.

    How about you DON’T hand the keys to the enemy waiting outside the gate? While we think about it? How’s that, for a start?

  13. “… and calling to defund the law enforcement agency.”

    The FBI is no longer a “law enforcement” agency.
    It is the enforcement arm of the nihilistic totalitarians posing as demonrats.

    Pence is either supremely ignorant or extraordinarily disingenuous.

    mortem tyrannis
    izlamo delenda est …

  14. Yeah, lay off the Rank & File. They were only following orders. Like the Gefreiters and Grenadiers in the SS.

  15. “The Greatest vice-president ever & a real American patriot! Chose country over a madman.”

    I thought that for you brain-dead assholes that either Pedophile Joey Biden or Deep Throat Kamelhoe Harris was the Greatest vice-(heh heh)-prezidunce ever.

    Anyway, give examples of this “madman” bullshit you’re crowing about.
    Three will do.

    mortem tyrannis
    izlamo delenda est …

  16. Would Mike rather read these comments or the ones folks were making about the FBI? He keeps digging his hole deeper. Liz would be proud.

  17. JDHasty,

    I had Forgotten what “BOCICA” meant.

    Now I can’t stop laughing.


  18. “We can hold the attorney general accountable for the decision that he made without attacking rank-and-file law enforcement personnel at the FBI”

    Then rank-and-file FBI personnel better step the fuck up and start talking about corruption within the agency ASAFP, otherwise, they are participating in that corruption and will be held accountable.

  19. Every one of the gutless ‘rank and file’ FBI employees that still remain there deserve zero respect. They should have already quit or blown their whistles to fight the corruption within the leadership.
